On Wednesday 11th April members of our Physics Society attended a fascinating talk entitled Cosmology: from the Hot Big Bang to Cold Dark Matter, led by Old Blue Dr David Marsh, from the Class of 2005.
David, who is currently based at the University of Göttingen in Germany, concentrated his discussion on the cosmology of the early universe and Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation. Theoretical work postulates that a large percentage of the universe contains dark matter, considered one of the greatest puzzles of physics. As a post-doctoral fellow, David’s research at the University of Göttingen will focus on this particular aspect of cosmology.
In spite of the complexities associated with this particular field, David’s presentation was extremely clear and was reinforced by analogies to assist our students’ understanding.
Members of our growing Physics Society thoroughly enjoyed David’s discussion as well as gaining an insight into his ongoing research. We would like to thank David for taking time out of his schedule to deliver such an insightful talk.
